Tea towels date back to the 18th century, when they were originally used in tea ceremonies to artistically accentuate the cups, as well as gently absorb any spills. They can be used as trivets, to protect tabletops and counters from hot baking dishes, as well as to wipe hands or dry off produce. Looking for other creative uses?

Enjoy the finer things in life with this Ginkgo Tea Towel set! The ginkgo is considered the oldest tree on the planet, with records indicating their emergence around 190 million years ago! These “living fossils” are often sought after for their gorgeous fall foliage, unique fan-shaped leaves, and medicinal qualities. The leaves can be used to create a a tincture or tea to improve circulation – which ultimately improves cognitive function as fresh, oxygenated blood can get to the brain readily. Spark some great conversation with these towels!
